Frequentis expands control centre capability

Frequentis has expanded its control centre capability by taking a 51% share of Italian company Regola. Regola’s computer aided dispatch (CAD), public warning system (PWS), and all-in-one mobile emergency application solutions complement the Frequentis product portfolio, supporting the company’s long-term public safety growth strategy, which also aims at expanding the portfolio to include other vital elements of the public safety control room.

Regola, founded in 1995, employs around 40 people and is a family-owned company based in Turin, Italy, which has been successfully active, primarily in the Italian market, for more than 25-years.

Norbert Haslacher, CEO, Frequentis, said, “Frequentis has been looking to expand its public safety domain offering for quite some time, with Regola we have found clear attributes for a perfect fit. A fellow family-owned company, Regola shares our values and culture, and its products are of the most innovative on the market. This acquisition underlines our Mission ‘For a safer World’ and brings us one step closer in meeting our vision to become the number one for safety-critical control centres globally. We are looking forward to reaching this goal with Regola.”

Bruno Belliero, Managing Director, Regola, said, “For us, the owners of Regola, it was of utmost importance to find a well-recognised, innovative partner in the public safety domain with the same spirit in mind – securing the future of our current customers, caring for our employees, and bringing our safety-critical solutions to the global public safety community – in Frequentis we found the partner we were looking for.”.

Regola will continue to be run as an independent company by the existing management leadership of Massimiliano Palma and will of course continue to support its current customers.
